  • OpTic Gaming Los Angeles is one of the 12 teams participating in the Call of Duty League inaugural season. Here’s everything you need to know about the OpTic Gaming Los Angeles team.

Who Are OpTic Gaming Los Angeles?

OpTic Gaming Los Angeles are a Call of Duty esports team competing in the Call of Duty League. The team represents the city of Los Angeles and is owned by Immortals Gaming.

OpTic Gaming Los Angeles And Immortals Gaming

On Oct.24, 2019, Immortals Gaming announced that OpTic Gaming would represent the city of Los Angeles in the new Call of Duty League (CDL). They would be one of two Los Angeles teams competing in the league. Immortals Gaming made headlines when they acquired OpTic Gaming’s parent company, Infinite Esports. The move was not popular among Greenwall fans. Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, the CEO and owner at the time left OpTic Gaming to join NRG Esports. It was an end of an era for one of the most successful Call of Duty esports teams in history. But now with the new franchised OpTic Gaming, the new team under Immortals Gaming will look to move forward and focus on having a successful inaugural season in the CDL.

The team showcased its revised logo via its social media channels on October 24, 2019. It’s the same traditional OG logo with “Los Angeles” at the bottom of it.

Introducing OpTic Gaming 2020 #OGLA

A post shared by OpTic Gaming (@opticgaming) on

The new Optic Gaming might not be a favorite among diehard Greenwall fans, but they can certainly agree on one thing; the roster for OGLA is impressive, consisting of top-caliber players. One of the popular rivalries in the 2019 CWL season was OpTic Gaming and 100 Thieves. Ironically, both teams would join together for the new league. Dashy and TJHaLy would be joined by 100 Thieves top players, Kenny and Slasher. The line-up is so impressive that even Clint Evans, ex-CoD esports player, and current esports analyst even congratulated OpTic Gaming Los Angeles for winning the CDL inaugural season.

When OpTic Gaming went through a transition, only Brandon “Dashy” Otell and Thomas “TjHaLy” Haly would remain on the new OGLA roster. Karma, Crimsix, and Scump would move on to other teams that would be competing in the CDL. Dashy is a fan favorite, and really came into his own when he joined OpTic Gaming in late 2018. One of his first appearances with the team shined through CWL Vegas where he won MVP. Dashy is well known for his sniping skills and has had highlight reels from many majors. TJHaLy was also a significant addition to the OG 2019 roster and has had some highlight moments as well.

Both Kenny “Kenny” Williams and Austin “Slasher” Liddicoat shined for 100 Thieves in the 2019 season. Both had impressive statistics in Search and Destroy and Control. Kenny had a sensational 2019 season, helping 100 Thieves win their first Call of Duty major title and doing it back to back. Kenny was one of the standout players for 100 Thieves. His great season landed him a nomination at the 2019 Esports Awards back in November for best console player of the year. Slasher, on the other hand, didn’t get a nomination at the Esports Awards, however, he was instrumental to 100 Thieves success and was part of the Call of duty All-Star team in Division B.

The last piece of the puzzle to the OGLA is Jordan “JKap” Kaplan. JKap had an interesting 2019 season. He is a back to back world champion, which is an incredible title to have in CoD esports. JKap played for eUnited throughout much of last season. But things started to get shaky, and some CoD competitive members over at Reddit were speculating backdoor politics within the Call of Duty team. During midseason, JKap was moved to a substitute while Simp took his place. Later on, JKap would leave eUnited to join Evil Geniuses for a short time before joining the OGLA.

The OGLA is one team to look out for, and OGLA fans will be excited to see how their first games will turn out in the new Call of Duty League.
